Nov.6th – 8th 2010
While still living in Wisconsin, I missed out on Chicago Spring LEAD as I was saving money for my move to Phoenix. When I learned about Fall LEAD School in Phoenix, I jumped the gun and registered.
Twitter is an amazing social online community. I began ridiculously involved with it and soon discovered a lot of Brothers from other parts of the States. Among Brothers I started following, Ethel was one of them. I had hoped to meet at her Phoenix event. Unfortunately, she couldn’t make at the last minute. However, she did help me introduce to her chapter Gamma Phi.
As I walked into lobby of the Mesa Hilton Hotel, I texted Chapter President Krystal that I am checking in. As I turned to my left side, I see ladies of Gamma Phi. I felt welcome. I had hope to run into old faces at this event, but I felt more connected to the Chapter. And I tell you what….they were a…R.I.O.T. and Hot Mess can’t never be forgotten. I also realized I can’t party like a 21-year old anymore. But I wish I had gone out with them at Mil Avenue. I kinda regret that.
Met Hilary from IU school, who had moved to Wickenburg (5o miles north of Phoenix). I also got introduce to Katie and Dave, who are a member of Phoenix Thunder Alumni chapter. The alumni chapter isn’t active but they mentioned they plan on being more active in 2011.
Not sure when but I tend to visit El Paso next time for initiation.
